On August 4, 2014 at approximately 5:45pm Transit Police officers were conducting Point of Entry Policing at the MBTA's Ruggles Station. While there they observed a male, later identified as Willie Butler
, 53, of Boston fare evade by "piggybacking" in behind a paying patron. Officers approached Butler for the purpose of issuing a citation and subsequently discovered Butler, a Level 2 Sex Offender, had a warrant in existence for his arrest issued from Stoughton District Court for Failure to Register as a Sex Offender. Butler was placed into custody and transported to Transit Police HQ for the arrest booking process.
